Nothing to add to what's already been said elsewhere. A real shot in the arm for horror which can only bolster the genre.
A film that makes jazz watchable is quite an achievement and yet Whiplash makes it look easy. An engaging story with fantastic performances all round makes this a real audio and visual treat. Jazz has a tendency for overlong self indulgent solos yet this is actually one of this films strengths. it's only January and we already have a film of the year candidate - remarkable!
